GALLATIN Veda Hooge and Jillian Baldis scored for Gallatin as the Lady Wave held off visiting Merrol Hyde Magnet 2-1 on Thursday evening.
Both Gallatin goals came in the first half, while Emilie Boone tallied for the Lady Hawks (2-1) in the second half. Boone had several scoring chances in the match.
“It’s got to be demoralizing for the other team to take so many quality shots and (junior goalkeeper Abi Green) makes saves on them. That’s what a goalkeeper is supposed to do.”
The Lady Hawks had numerous chances in the second half, but Green and the Lady Wave defense made the lead stand up in the final 40 minutes.
“I felt like (Gallatin) did a good job of capitalizing on their opportunities in the first half, getting two quick goals like that,” Merrol Hyde Magnet head coach Jason Bentley said. “It’s a good game that I think both (teams) like to play, and it’s the type of game that we need before we go into district play.”
Gallatin improved to 2-0 with the victory.
>> Cameron Giles and Brooke Long each scored twice in Hendersonville’s 7-0 victory at Wilson Central. Jesse Ashworth, Sydney Cason and Haley Stevens also netted goals for the Lady Commandos (3-0-1 overall, 2-0 in District 9-AAA).
